Best Original Game
Sequels are all well and good but there really is nothing that gets the pulse racing faster than the thought of something entirely new. In the age of sequels these are becoming an increasingly rare treat, but here we celebrate some of the best original games keeping things fresh. While these don’t have to be from new franchises they are all entirely new series, doing something radically different from what’s gone before.
Dead Cells is fast-paced, slick, action-packed and pitched just right in terms of difficulty. This is paired with a ridiculously addictive upgrade loop and drool-worthy animations, combining to deliver a roguelike which can stand tall alongside greats like Spelunky.
